The IKS HovQaw'wI' was a Klingon battlecruiser under the command of Captain Gerzhog in the mid-23rd century.

In 2266, the HovQaw'wI' participated in Starfleet General Order 24—the eradication of all lifeforms—at Gamma Tauri IV. It assisted the USS Endeavour and the USS Lovell in bombarding the planet with photon torpedoes following the wholesale slaughter of the human and Klingon colonies by Shedai Sentinels.
